Appearing on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint continues the GOP meme about how America is moving away from freedom and toward socialism.  He bemoans that people from other countries come up to him and wonder why they came to a country not too different than the ones they left. (h/t Think Progress)


DEMINT: And we’ve seen a lot of countries over the years collapse when they’ve gone down the road that we’re going down. Probably the most heart-wrenching experiences I’ve had over the last several days is when naturalized American citizens who have immigrated here from Germany, Iran and other countries, they come up to me and they say why are we doing what so many have fled from? Why don’t Americans see what we’re doing? And I’ve realized that these people who’ve lived under socialist type economies, and totalitarianism, they know where we’re headed if we don’t turn things around.

 


DeMint loves tossing around the word “freedom.”  He made his last Liberaland appearance when he claimed that health care reform was “D-Day for freedom in America,” and compared Obama’s policies to the National Socialism of Hitler’s Nazi Germany.
